Contrary to popular thought, dental sedation isn’t reserved for long, complicated, invasive procedures. It’s also useful for patients with dental phobia and anxiety to help put them at ease before and during the procedure. Dentists also used sedation for patients with sensitive gag reflexes or disorders that make them queasy or agitated while in the dental chair. We offer various sedation options to ensure comfortable and seamless treatments for all our patients.
"Twilight Sleep" was an early form of Sedation Dentistry introduced in the late 19th century?

At Diversey Dental Studio, we offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, sedation to calm our patients and ensure smooth procedures, regardless of their anxiety levels. We simply put a mask over your nose and mouth and connect it to the laughing gas supply. We then turn the gas supply on, and you should feel calm and light-headed once you inhale the laughing gas.

A comprehensive assessment of your medical records, dental and medical health precedes the sedation process. This assessment helps the dentist determine whether sedation is necessary and the best type of sedation for your procedure. It’s also an opportunity to discuss anxieties and ask questions about the sedation process to reduce doubts and apprehension.
There are three main types of sedation techniques in dentistry: nitrous oxide, oral consciousness, and Intravenous (IV) sedation. The dentist decides the most appropriate technique based on factors like the complexity of the dental treatment, your anxiety levels, age, and overall health and well-being. The dentist will also determine the level of sedation, ranging from mild to general anesthesia, that knocks you unconscious.
The dentist will administer the sedation as per standard dental procedure. This may involve putting a mask over your mouth and nose, taking a pill or syrup for oral sedation, and injecting an IV drip in your arm for IV sedation. They’ll also keep a keen eye on your heart rate, blood pressure, and other vitals during the procedure.
Recovery times vary from one sedation technique to the next and could take anywhere from a few minutes to forty-eight hours, as is the case with intravenous sedation. You should avoid driving or operating dangerous machinery during this period. Instead, let someone drive you home and rest so you can recover quickly from the sedation and treatment.

You must be in good general health to qualify for laughing gas sedation. You must also not be pregnant or allergic to nitrous oxide. You should also be free from alcohol influence a few hours before and during the dental procedure. It’s worth noting that laughing gas sedation is mostly useful for short procedures. Lengthy procedures require often require stronger forms of sedation, like general anesthesia.
You’ll be sedated for as long as the procedure takes. That’s because laughing gas takes effect in a matter of minutes, but its effects also fade away just as fast.
